Despite 40 years of research, doctors say the rates of Fetal Alcohol Syndrome are not improving.
There seems to be very little focus and awareness of fetal alcohol syndrome, says Dr. Kenneth Lyons Jones, who is one of the doctors who discovered the disease in 1973. He says that since then, we have not seen much improvement.
"A lot of women continue to drink when they don't even know they are pregnant," he said. "And in fact, the prevalence of this disorder in this country does not seem to have decreased."
And as far as those articles that say drinking a glass of wine a day while you're pregnant is OK, Dr. Jones disputes that and says any alcohol while pregnant is dangerous.
